As recently as twenty years ago, tackling the problem yourself was a viable option is you knew your way around a car. Unfortunately, the downside to this option was it took time. More often than not, it was a case of trial and error, checking and re-checking. Then there was the waiting for the replacement parts, followed by their installation. Nowadays however, most cars have complex electronic control systems installed, sometimes with as many as 10 units in the one car! Checking these complicated systems yourself could prove dangerous or in the case of airbags, even fatal, should you not know exactly what you are doing. That’s why you need a obd diagnostic interface.
